Brace yourselves fear aficionados! This time, MONSTER PARTY has a topic so huge, it needs a sequel!
JAMES GONIS, SHAWN SHERIDAN, LARRY STROTHE and MATT WEINHOLD take a stab at chronicling the ups, downs, and sideways of... HORROR SEQUELS!!!
And somehow (possibly through the promise of reasonably priced wine) they managed to secure as a guest, the writer of one of the finest horror sequels of all time...ROBERT ZAPPIA!
Robert's amazing screenwriting prowess led to HALLOWEEN H2O, a film that reunites JAMIE LEIGH CURTIS with the Halloween film series. If you haven't seen this film, watch it, then come back and bask in the many fantastic behind the screen stories Robert brings to the MONSTER PARTY table! Also up for applause and attacks are such fright franchises like A Nightmare of Elm Street, Child's Play, Hellraiser, Evil Dead, Friday the 13th, and more!!!
Hey, if MONSTER PARTY is a horror franchise, this is our 51st sequel!

MONSTER PARTY gives fear an international flavor!
JAMES GONIS, SHAWN SHERIDAN, LARRY STROTHE and MATT WEINHOLD cross every possible time zone to bring you their most trepidatious, transatlantic topic... FOREIGN HORROR!!!
Of course, to help dissect such a massive topic, who could they get but a guest with massive talent? Yes, it's the star of the legendary comedy series,THE OFFICE...OSCAR NUNEZ!
You'll cringe when you listen to Oscar bring up creepy movies that even the Monster Party gang have never heard of! You'll shudder when you hear about the works of such horror trailblazers as Mario Bava, Dario Argento, Guillermo Del Toro, Jean Cocteau, Takashi Miike, Coffin Joe, Jean Rollin, Paul Naschy and Lucio Fulci! And you'll faint from fright learning about films like The Blind Dead series, Martyrs, A Girl Walks Home Alone At Night, The Braniac, Juan of the Dead, We Are What We Are, Goke: Body Snatcher From Hell, The Son of the Shark, Cannibal Holocaust, and much, much more!
This time, MONSTER PARTY is your passport to TERROR! But when vacationing in TERROR, it's best not to drink the water.

Take a time out with JAMES GONIS, SHAWN SHERIDAN, LARRY STROTHE, and MATT WEINHOLD, as they put the subject of EVIL KIDS over their knee! Joining in on the topic of terribly terrifying tykes is a comic giant with a whopping 45 David Letterman appearances...JAKE JOHANNSEN!
Prepare to soil your diapers as the gang tackles questions like, is a possessed child actually evil; what's with evil kids and corn; should Larry be worried his daughter loves The Bad Seed; and is the actor who played King Joffrey on Game of Thrones really great, or actually a dick? It's a celebration of the dastardly brats from films like The Exorcist, The Omen, The Chosen, The Child, Who Can Kill A Child?, Halloween, Pet Sematary, The Other, The Children, Battle Royale, Orphan, The Cooties, Kill Baby Kill!, Demon Seed, The Unborn, and more!
You better not try to steal one of these kids' noses. It won't end well!

MONSTER PARTY kicks you right in your JurASSic!
JAMES GONIS, SHAWN SHERIDAN, LARRY STROTHE and MATT WEINHOLD take a journey to a genre that time forgot...DINOSAURS!!!
Joining them on this inebriated expedition are actor/filmmaker/animator FRANK DIETZ and screenwriter/director/editor FRANK WOODWARD, who are also two of the hosts of another excellent sci-fi horror podcast, DAMN DIRTY GEEKS!
The two Franks have brought their amazing talents to such films as ROCK N ROLL NIGHTMARE, BLACK ROSES, WRONG TURN 6, and BLACK FOREST; DISNEY'S HERCULES, MULAN, TARZAN, FANTASIA 2000; and the documentaries MEN IN SUITS, THE SPLAT PACK, and LOVECRAFT:FEAR OF THE UNKNOWN. Marvel as the gang ponder baffling questions like: What kind of dinosaur is Dino from THE FLINSTONES? Does REPTILICUS qualify as a dinosaur or a good film? Did anyone make it through the film, BABY:SECRET OF THE LOST LEGEND? And after the first day of shooting on the THE MIGHTY GORGA, why did anyone return the next day?
Hear preposterous theories about ONE MILLION YEARS B.C., THE LAND UNKOWN, BEAST FROM 20,000 FATHOMS, THE VALLEY OF GWANGI, DINOSAURUS, KING KONG, THE LAST DINOSAUR, JURASSIC PARK, THE LAND THAT TIME FORGOT, AT THE EARTH'S CORE, CARNOSAUR, UNKNOWN ISLAND, LAND OF THE LOST, DINOSAUR TOYS/MODELS, and MORE!
